A lifelong musician, Randall Kromm reinvented himself as a folksinger in 2009, playing at coffeehouses, open mikes, and clubs in the greater Boston area. Since then, he has performed a sold-out show at Club Passim, New England's premier folk venue, released his first CD (Water Wheel) and received a multitude of accolades from the music community, including Christine Lavin and Don White.
